We know that one thing readers like about us is that we are often the first to report breaking news. But our email subscribers are often slow to see that breaking news, since by design they only get an update once a day.
Also, those who like our Facebook page are subject to the whims of the Facebook algorithm, and might not be seeing breaking stories.
Today we’re wondering: should we offer an alternative? Should we start sending out breaking news alerts to email subscribers?
